Walter (Wally) is soon to be 67 years old and from Lakewood, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland. He spends the winter months shuttling between Cleveland and his winter home in Key West, Florida. Wally and his wife, Joyce, have three adult children who have each run at least one marathon with him. His son Trey completed the Cozumel Ironman in 2010 with Wally, although if the truth be told, Trey finished 2 hours ahead of his dad. 2022 NYC will be Wally’s 36th marathon, and he is looking forward to reliving the excitement of his 2016 NYC Marathon run. In his business career, Wally has built a group of corporate industrial companies that provide equipment and services to the filtration, water, and wastewater field and for air quality monitoring. Wally is honored to be representing Herren Project and the good work they do in the field of substance use and recovery, as he has seen the negative consequences of alcohol and drug use by family members.
